37: The Ghost of Cross World Forrest
When the Troopers run out of gas in the middle of nowhere, they must abandon their car and spend the night in an old miner's cabin near the old Ghost Mine where Grimlord is constructing his newest weapon---the REALITY BUSTER. Despera releases FOGBOT and the FOGATRONS, creatures who dispense a deadly fog which takes away a trooper's power to transform. Ryan goes for a walk and is disabled by the Fogbot. JB goes to look for Ryan, transforms and helps from the VR Skybase. Kaitlin falls into a mineshaft when she and Jeb go looking for Ryan and JB. Professor hart configures the VR Scanner to neutralize the effects of the fob. VR JB saves Ryan and Jeb saves Kaitlin by pulling her out of the mine with a rope. Together again and back to full power, the VR Troopers destroy the weapons factory and the Reality Buster. Then VR Ryan defeats Fogbot.

38: Grimlord's Dummy
Woody asks Kaitlin, Ryan, and JB to find entertainment for the annual Underground Kid's Extravaganza. They go to the park, where they track down WENDLE, a young ventriloquist and his dummy, WOODMAN. They hire him on the spot. When Ziktor gets word of the Trooper's mission, he transforms and orders Despera to place a spell on Woodman--bringing the puppet to life. Wendle is first amused at Woodman's unexpected outbursts, but then realizes he has no control over the dummy. When the dummy begins to grow to human proportions, he announces his true objective: to destroy the VR Troopers. Woodman steals JB and Kaitlin's Virtualizers, then runs off. To distract the Troopers, Grimlord sends PUPPETOID into Cross World city. Ryan must fight Puppetoid while JB and Kaitlin find Woodman and restore him to his earlier condition. They recover their Virtualizers, Wendle and Woodman are reunited, and the Underground Kid's Extravaganza is a smashing success!

40: Galileo's New Memory
The Troopers have invented a new robot, GALILEO, to assist Professor Hart in the lab. His memory banks hold all the knowledge of the lab's computer. Grimlord kidnaps the robot and begins extracting information in order to crush the Troopers. But the Troopers have a plan...they follow Doom Master back to the Dark Fortress and rescue the robot. There, they find that Grimlord has stolen nearly all the robot's information. Troopers rescue Galileo and set Grimlord's computers to self-destruct. As they leave, Grimlord's chamber goes up in flames.
